Columbine or Granny's Bonnet is a traditional English cottage garden plant. It is best known for its flowers, which are long lasting and lovely, but we grow it for its foliage. The glaucous scalloped leaves are extremely decorative and look fresh from early spring through late fall.

Very easy to grow. Prefers humus rich soil in light shade, but it is not overly particular. Deer and rabbit resistant.

'Ruby Port' is an heirloom dating back to the 1600s. It has beautiful dark wine colored double flowers with short spurs.

Note: These are promiscuous plants that will mix and mingle if not grown in relative isolation.
